The annual thankful list (2015)

Every year around Thanksgiving I'm prompted to write down things I'm thankful for. In the age prior to the internet, I'd keep lists in my "journal," or make projects at school dedicated to things I was thankful for. But now that the internet is here, I can make them and look back on them from year to year, and never lose any of it...duh duh duh!

I'm thankful for a lot of things each year, so I decided to make it an official tradition on the blog. I even made a fancy graphic for it with my free trial of Picmonkey Royale! So you know it's legit.


If you're so inclined to join me, feel free to steal the image right from here (you should be able to copy and save it, if not email me and I can zip it on over to you quick-like) and make a list yourself! Nothing fancy, just a good old-fashioned list of things you're thankful for.

Here's last year's edition, which I should beef up with this fancy photo now, if you're so inclined.

And now onto the list!

Things I'm thankful for...

Kateri "Kitty" Amelia Gokie
margaritas
David, the best husband ever
my work from home job
the ability to exercise
my cellular telephone
pictures of Kate when she was little (she's still little!)

super throwback picture because I'm blogging from David's laptop...babies!
Taken one year ago today. She was CHUNKY. (heart eye emoji)
Such a cutie patootie who will have my heart forever.
Please do join me in this if you want - it always fills my heart with joy to reread my lists from years past, and I think you'll feel the same!
